Slide 1: ==== ==== Looking for a solution to grow your own food year round? check this out http://37ecf0wthjskcx26omfi10cl28.hop.clickbank.net/ ==== ==== Winter can be a tough time for those of us who take pride in growing some of our own food. While we wouldn't even think about dropping a seed in the ground, that doesn't mean we can't grow our own food during these dark and dreary days. One fun and easy way to stick it to old man winter is by growing microgreens on your windowsill. Over the past few years, microgreens have become incredibly popular with chefs and discerning "foodies" alike. For good reason. They're delicious! They can be used to add flavor and color to your salads or even as a main salad ingredient themselves. What are microgreens? So what is a "micro green?" This unusual term is sometimes incorrectly used to describe sprouts, but the growing method is much different. Microgreens are grown in shallow trays with soil, unlike sprouts which are soaked and grown in empty containers. They're usually harvested at the 2nd or 3rd leaf stage, when they're around an inch and a half high. You might say microgreens are somewhere between sprouts and baby greens in size. How to grow microgreens Growing microgreens is easy. They can be grown in any shallow container. I've even used those plastic lettuce containers from the grocery store. You can also order shallow flats specially suited for the job from your favorite garden supplier. Whatever container you use, make sure there are holes for drainage. Fill your container with moistened soil mix and then sow your seeds evenly across the surface of the soil. You can experiment with density, but I've found the more dense the better, because it is easier to harvest. Cover them with a thin layer of soil and place in the sunniest spot in your house, usually a south facing window. Many traditional garden crops can be grown as delicious microgreens including lettuces, mustards, beets, kale, parsley, basil, cilantro and arugula, radish, peas, sunflower. You should soak larger seeded plants like sunflower and pea seeds overnight before you plant to aid germination. Once they're basking in the sun on your warm windowsill, check them periodically to make sure the soil stays moist. You should watch for them to sprout after about a week. After 2 weeks they will be an inch and a half high and ready to harvest. Harvest with a sharp knife or scissors. Be sure to rinse the greens after harvesting; you don't want grit and seed hulls to end up in your final product. Rinsing also seems to make them last longer in the refrigerator. You can expect them to last 1-2 weeks in the fridge.
Slide 2: Last word One last thing: be creative! This is an opportunity to let out the artist in you. Try out a few different varieties and mix them together for some interesting flavors and colors - I love radish because of the beautiful purple blush it lends to my microgreen mixes. I don't however recommend mixing seeds in the same growing container. It can lead to a headache later on when you're trying to harvest shoots of different sizes. Keep them segregated until it's time to put them into a bag and throw them in the refrigerator. Anthony Howell Anthony is a gardener and aspiring organic farmer.
